Jubilee fever was reignited in the Midlands as The Queen, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the region.
They arrived in Nottingham on the first leg of the Diamond Jubilee tour.
Kate and William greeted the Queen as she got off of her train and the royal party proceeded to walk into the main station where they were greeted by hundreds of cheering well-wishers, some of whom had been there since 5am.
The Queen was given seemingly endless bouquets of flowers as she chatted with the masses of people waiting to meet her.
The Queen looked elegant in a silk tweed, double breasted Stewart Parvin coat and shift dress, her hat was by designer Rachel Trevor-Morgan.
Fashion icon Kate wore a blue coat by Missoni and a hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan.
The royals proceeded to walk into the Old Market Square in the city centre as thousands of people had gathered to welcome the royals.
The Queen, William and Kate made their way up to the balcony of the Council House in the Square to wave to the 20,000 well-wishers as the National Anthem played out.
One of those well-wishers was Maureen Cottee (66) from Leicester, she shook hands with Kate as she arrived in the square:
The royal party left Old Market Square and were driven down roads lined with flag flying well-wishers to Vernon Park where Prince William made his official jubilee tribute.
The Duke of Edinburgh could not take part in the visit today as he continues to recover from a bladder infection.
Vernon Park, in Nottingham is the latest to be granted Queen Elizabeth II Fields In Trust status, making it one of the 1,300 recreational spaces to be given the status so far.
The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge is an initiative by the Fields In Trust charity to protect 2012 recreational spaces across the UK as a permanent legacy to mark the Jubilee.
The Queen unveiled a plaque, marking the park's new status before leaving to go to Burghley Park.
The Queen left Kate and William at Vernon Park where Kate collected bouquets from well-wishers and both chatted with children and the public.
The Duke and Duchess then took part in the sports-day style activities by Brockwell School, from Chesterfield that had been organised such as taking it in turns to throw an inflatable javelin.
The Queen arrived at Burghley House in Stamford, Lincolnshire at around 12.00pm.
Here 10,000 people were enjoying a jubilee picnic and welcomed Her Majesty as she landed on the estate by helicopter.
She was invited to plant a tree in the grounds to mark the visit and was given a tour of the house.
As the Queen prepared to leave the House for her next stop, Corby, the Red Arrows performed a flyover draping the sky with red, white and blue.
The final stop for the Queen was Corby, Northamptonshire.
Once again thousands of well-wishers greeted the Queen with rapturous enthusiasm waving flags and handing her flowers as she arrived at the East Midlands International Pool.
Inside, she was invited to take a seat next to the pool which was lined with a team of cheerleaders as a ten minute performance went underway from a team of synchronised swimmers and te Corby Steel Diving Club and City of Leeds Diving Club.
Caitlin McClatchey, a member of the Team GB Olympic Swimming Team was lucky enough to meet the Queen at the pool today:
When the Queen exited the pool, she greeted the crowds outside before being given a tour of The Cube theatre which included a performance in the theatre by a community choir and a dance troop.
The people of Corby presented her with a small gift before she made her way out of The Cube and met more well-wishers, before unveiling the second plaque of the day, this one to commemorate her visit.
The Queen stepped into her car to the sounds of roaring crowds and the sight of a sea of flags , marking the end of the day the Queen brought the jubilee spirit to the Midlands.
